I am very pleased to announce that version 0.5.2 of Elixir (http://elixir.ematia.de) is now available. As always, feedback is very welcome, preferably on Elixir mailing list.
This is a minor bug fixes release (mostly restoring python 2.3 compatibility).
The full list of changes can be seen at: http://elixir.ematia.de/trac/browser/elixir/tags/0.5.2/CHANGES
Elixir is a declarative layer on top of the SQLAlchemy library. It is a fairly thin wrapper, which provides the ability to create simple Python classes that map directly to relational database tables (this pattern is often referred to as the Active Record design pattern), providing many of the benefits of traditional databases without losing the convenience of Python objects.
Elixir is intended to replace the ActiveMapper SQLAlchemy extension, and the TurboEntity project but does not intend to replace SQLAlchemy's core features, and instead focuses on providing a simpler syntax for defining model objects when you do not need the full expressiveness of SQLAlchemy's manual mapper definitions.
